Group of friends went to the Keg....they seated us in a separate alcove that made it private for us. We all enjoyed our meals, most had steak/prime rib or chicken. Salads were delicious.

my son and I went there before a Mooseheads hockey game. We had the top sirloin steaks with sides. Great steak to say the least. The beer was good also. WE both enjoyed our food and will definitely be back.

The Keg, in Halifax, has great steaks and prime rib, as well as a very good wedge salad. Add to that a nice atmosphere and friendly servers.

I had not visited the Halifax location in over 30 years. Now I remember why. They don't take reservations. While it's nice for the business owner to have people lining up out the door, it's not so great for people waiting an hour for a table, especially out on the sidewalk during a Halifax winter. We arrived before 5 pm... More

Had the best Surf & Turf meal I have ever enjoyed before attending a Boston vs Montreal hockey game. Atmosphere was excellent and service beyond 5 star.

The Keg is just good, a bit rich for my blood but darn good. I guess when you cook with the best cut of beef or use butter and not the healthiest ingredients, it has got to taste good. Usually come here for a birthday dinner as it tends to be over $200 for our family of 4. For that... More

My hubby recently celebrated a birthday. I wanted to take him to dinner somewhere we had never been together so we decided on the Keg. It was probably not a good idea to attempt it on a saturday night. It was extremely busy. Wait time was at least an hour. Waiting area is not that big and there were a... More

Have eaten here a couple of times. The steak is always a good choice...good quality and always cooked perfectly. Really enjoy the wedge salad as well, and their nachos are a HUGE portion. Good for sharing with someone
